    I have Photoshop CS3 and want to make my own backdrop using various concert photos I've taken over the years :) Please could someone tell me how I'd go about doing this using photoshop?

    Thank you
    Amy :)

    looks like one main picture, 4 seperate layers for each little picture and a layer mask overlayed for the purple coloring. pretty easy to do actually, probably about within 10 mins

    There are a few things that certainly go into it.

    Several Layers, Image Masking, and Color Adjusting. You'll need some version of Adobe Photoshop to begin. That's the place to start.

    Thank you :) I've downloaded some brushes now. I've worked with masks before I just need to remember how to use them now lol.

    Thanks again :)

    To me it looks like the the main big picture, 4 smaller pictures, 1 piece of small fabric scanned, another large piece of fabric as well (fabric could just be brushes though), colour adjustment and then a bit of brushwork.
